My background as a driver trainer started in the Army Reserve as an Instructor/Licence Testing Officer. I was responsible for the running of my unit’s transport platoon and the writing and conducting of competency-based driver training in the Army’s fleet of vehicles. I completed a Certificate III Road Transport, Certificate IV Workplace Trainer and Assessor and a Graduate Diploma of Technology Education. I work as a teacher of Materials Technology at a secondary college and am passionate about educating our younger drivers. As a member of the Council, I want to work towards privatising the licence testing and introducing Competency Based Training. To achieve these goals will require further professional development of the ADTAV members which can only enhance the perception within the community of the level of professionalism of the ADTAV Driver Trainers.
